Salat ul-Kusuf (Prayer on a solar eclipse)

On Monday, August 21, all of North America will be able to witness an eclipse of the sun. IAR will be hosting a Salat ul-Kusuf Special Event on Monday, August 21st at 2 PM. There will be a short viewing after the prayer.
It is reported in Sahih Bukhari, "An eclipse of the sun occurred during the time of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ, so the Messenger of Allah ﷺ led people in Salat (called Salat ul-Kusuf)."
Please bring your own prayer rug as well as eclipse glasses for safety.

Salah Instructions:


Salat-ul-Kusuf (Prayer on a solar eclipse) are each comprised of two Rak'ahs (units of Prayer). Recitation in both Salahs (Prayers) is performed out loud. In each Rak'ah, there are two Ruku's (bowing), the second of which is always shorter than the first, and there are also two recitations.
After the Takbirat-ul-Ihram (saying: "Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest]" upon starting Prayer), Surah Al-Fatihah and a long Surah are recited. After the first Ruku', Surah Al-Fatihah and a long Surah are recited, which is shorter than the preceding recitation. There are two Sujuds (Prostrations) in each Rak'ah. This is the most authentic report mentioned regarding this Salah.

Udhiyah/qurbani Program For 2017 - Payment Collection: August 13th to 25th

The Social & Welfare Committee has selected Somalia for Udhiyah/Qurbani this year. The cost is $100 per sheep. Somalia has been selected as it is facing critical climate conditions affecting eastern Africa. The effects of this climate system started in December 2015, and now, in 2017, things have gotten exponentially worse. Millions of people are in need of humanitarian assistance and food insecurity is growing. Somalis continue to live in an emergency situation, and 2 million people struggle to meet their minimum daily needs.
